What is your favorite obscure game of this generation?

By "obscure" I mean something that hasn't been in the gaming public spotlight, not necessarily totally unknown. Maybe games with a cult following. Something like Too Human or Dark Souls would be a good example.

I was thinking about some games from last gen that didn't receive a lot of spotlight, but I really loved them (Brute Force, Greg Hastings' Tournament Paintball). I can't think of any obscure games from this generation that I have really loved. All of my favorite games recently have been big hits (Bioshock, ME series, AC2, LIMBO, Halo series, Valve titles, RDR, etc.). Are there some smaller games that I may have missed that I should try out?

If I had to choose one...it'd be hard to decide between Nier, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Xenoblade.

And Darksiders 2. I can't choose ):

Deadly premonition isn't exactly obscure on these boards. Here, it's probably more popular than COD.
